Reveille Peak Ranch in the Texas Hill Country is a privately owned 1,300-acre plot of land that promises to impress trail runners, mountain bikers, hikers, families, and even SCUBA enthusiasts. The ranch is located just outside of Burnet, Texas, about an hour from Austin, and is only open on weekends, so keep that in mind. Also keep in mind that Reveille Peak Ranch requires all visitors to register online for a day pass. You are also required to sign a waiver and check trail availability, because there are usually a lot of events and races held here throughout the year, including ultra-endurance events, adventure races, mud runs, etc.
What Makes It Great
Though it may require a few extra minutes of preparation, visiting Reveille Peak Ranch will definitely make the effort worthwhile, as it provides one the of the best Hill Country experiences available. With plenty of primitive camping, RV sites, and over 60 miles of trails, as well as Jeep roads and off-road race courses, the ranch allows people of all recreational backgrounds to find their own authentic Texan adventure. You can even bring your road bike for a “park and ride” experience over gorgeous, winding Texas Hill Country roads. But really, it's the mountain biking opportunities at Reveille Peak Ranch that make it such a special place.
Who is Going to Love It
There are miles of single-track and downhill trails that take riders of all skill levels over granite outcroppings and into the savannah grasslands below. The Austin Ridge Riders designed the trails here, and currently on offer, are almost 100 kilometers worth of routes! Once you're done with your ride, why not throw a little party for you and yours? There's a covered pavilion with a kitchen, a bar, and seating for up to 500 people. And there's even a lake where you can canoe, kayak, and swim. Reveille Peak Ranch has it all! Have fun!
